Can You Save Your Home from Being a Bank Repo?

By: Joseph Smith

Banks donít want to take homes from homeowners. Their goal is not to own foreclosures. If you are going to miss your monthly mortgage payment and fear your home is about to become a bank repo then you need to contact the lender right away.

The first instance that you realize you will not be able to make the monthly mortgage payment on your home then you need to contact the lender. No one wants their home to become a foreclosure and it would be devastating on the credit report. The lenders donít want to own the homes and they are more than willing to work with you.

The most important thing is that you prove to the lender how badly you really want to save your home. As long as they know you are willing to do whatever it takes they will work with you and help you maintain possession of your home. One of the ways that a lender will work with a homeowner is buy taking the missed payments and putting them at the back end of your loan. This means that if you were to complete the payoff of your home in May of 2020 and you have missed three payments then your new payoff would be August of 2020. You would just begin making payments to the lender as if you hadnít missed a single one.

Another way that a lender will work with you is by allowing you to make the normal monthly payments as if you havenít missed a single one and treat the arrearages as if you have a personal loan. They will expect you to make small payments toward the arrearages until the full balance is paid off entirely. You may make $200 payments each month to the bank in addition to your monthly mortgage payment to get caught up. This is common to.

A bank repo home is not what lenders want on their books. The first sign that a homeowner shows they want to maintain their home and do whatever it takes to keep it they will give you options. Always remain in touch with the lender and find out what they can do for you.
